Print Lab: Open Hours / Appointment Booking
The Hive’s Print Lab “Open“ hours are for students who have gone through the necessary training via our Skill Shares and/or Proctor Hours and have proven their knowledge of the methods and procedures dictated by the Print Lab. Students will have to complete a Print Lab ID (which you can pick up at the Hive) by demonstrating all the necessary steps to independently complete a screen printing project.
During Open Lab students are able to work on their projects without proctored supervision for certain blocks of time. Students are can reserve the space in multiple 30 minute time blocks up to the time they anticipate using the space. These students are responsible for leaving the Print Lab in a condition better than they found it.
- The student must have a completed Print Lab ID and have final approval from a Print Lab Proctor (Anika Gupta, Jane Lovett, and Sebastian Lee) or Hive Post Bac (Wing-Yee Law)
- You may burn up to 3 screens during an open hour session (we want to make sure others will have screens too!)
- If you want to save a screen (up to 2 weeks), label in tape on the screen your name and the date the screen was burned. You may have up to 2 screens saved at a time.
- Any screen that is burned must be cleaned after two weeks.
- Clean up after yourself or Print Lab access will be revoked for a year.
- You may bring up to 1 friend who has not been approved for open hours and you are responsible for anything that happens during your session. If you want to do a larger group printing session, please email a Hive Post Bac for more information
- If you plan on printing 30+ of an item, you must provide your own water based fabric ink (we recommend Speedball)
